Etisalat to roll out 5G devices by first-half of 2019

Etisalat has launched live download speed comparison between 4G and 5G live networks allowing visitors the opportunity to experience the “download time” difference between the two technologies by downloading a 4K HD movie/video using 4G and 5G at the same time during GITEX Technology Week which is taking place at Dubai World Trade Center.

The senior vice-president of Mobile Network of Etisalat, Saeed Al Zarouni, specified that the UAE is now known worldwide as a tech hub and is providing the right platform for global businesses to look at the UAE as the most favoured investment destination. “Our business strategy is to align with the government’s vision to create a happy and smart city and hence the rollout of 5G is inevitable.”

Al Zarouni further declared, “We believe 5G technologies and services will deliver capacity and connectivity along with opportunities for economic growth, education, healthcare, transportation and more.”

The arrival of 5G technology will allow faster data transmissions and will prove to be a turning point for the autonomous industry.
